Clinton Wraps Up Economic Mission Through Africa

by Associated Press posted Aug 10 2012 3:54PM
 COTONOU, Benin (AP) - On an epic diplomatic mission through Africa, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton braved an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in Uganda, escaped a swarm of angry bees in Malawi and shimmied on a dance floor in South Africa, earning the nickname "Secretary of Shake."
 
     Circumnavigating the continent from Senegal to Kenya and back around to Benin, she also engineered an oil deal between Sudan and South Sudan, read the riot act to bickering politicians in Kenya, visited South African freedom icon Nelson Mandela and pushed Nigeria's leaders to improve intelligence cooperation.
 
     With her arrival on Friday in Benin, Clinton shattered her own travel record as secretary of state, logging 108 countries visited in office.
